Welcome to CutTime Productions –
the art of inspiring the whole community!
CutTime® refreshes classical music with soul and personality to introduce the symphony to the casual and curious in restaurants, bars, clubs, homes, offices, churches and schools. CutTime is two ensembles of 4-8 musicians & the Classical Revolution Detroit series that HIP new listeners to the fun. We play from our huge catalog of lively transcriptions and funky-romantic new compositions. Staged concerts & reading events are passionate & informative as hosted by the bassist-composer Rick Robinson (Mr. CutTime), formerly of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. By connecting with the wider, casual community with personal context, key insights, amplification and games… CutTime proves it’s time to cut the formality out of classical music!
CutTime won a major grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, part of its Knight Arts Challenge, as well as the Kresge Foundation to share the symphony throughout Detroit with the Classical Revolution Detroit (club classical) series.
